Murphy Grimes (possible Murty,Martin or Mortimer Gorham) b. abt. 1822 Galway and Barbara King(possible Conroy) b. abt. 1822 Galway had four children that I am aware of. Three daughters, Mary Agnes Grimes b. abt. 1844 Galway,Elizabeth (Kate) b. abt. 1844 Galway. Mother Barbara and daughter Elizabeth were living in Richmond, Va. in 1860. Mary and sister Bridget (b.1848 Galway) arrived in Richmond prior to the civil war. The fourth child, son John Joseph Grimes b. abt. 1854 Galway came to Richmond in 1870 with his mother Barbara who left Richmond,Va and went back to Galway for him. I have no evidence that Murphy or Murty came to America.

Son John Joseph Grimes made three trips back to Ireland, in 1911,1929 and 1939. All three trips were to Clifden.
If any knows about these individuals or familes, please contact me.

Thanks,
Rich
